Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – February 22, 2017
Just to give you, the reader, an idea of management turnover: after one year as a production supervisor, I was the most senior of the entire management staff aside from the general manager. That will also give a clue as to why. Employees were the only saving grace. Management was demeaning and even screamed at supervisors using derogatory language, all undeserved. Therefore, the production manager quit, the production superintendent left, warehouse supervisors quit, production supervisors quit, and maintenance supervisors quit. Not to mention how the maintenance department is grossly under budgeted...the best qualified maintenance acquisitions would in turn quit with very short terms. As an hourly employee...excellent place to work. As a member of management...nightmare does not even begin to describe.
Hourly pay, hourly employee support
Short management lifespans, no preventative maintenance plan, unreal schedule requirements (hours/days off).
Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – December 24, 2016
I have worked for 3 dairies and Hiland is the best. Updated equipment, support from management, very little if any drama. I like being on my own have spent 30 years in the dairy business. The hours can be long at times, but selling quality products has its rewards.
Route salesman/ delivery driver (Current Employee) – Chandler, OK – July 21, 2016
I have driven a truck for Hiland Dairy now for four years. They pay good and have excellent benefits. But sometimes the management doesn't do what they need to do to assist their employees and help them have an enjoyable job.

This job could pay better, but it is a stress free work place with no drama, and great management. Nice equipment, and management support. All employees work well together, and 99% of the customers are easy to work for.

The upper management create a job culture that is not productive to the worker that know and preform the jobs on a daily base. The jobs and co-workers are fulfilling and fun. The hours are long when you first start.

Production supervisor (Former Employee) – omaha ne – November 15, 2013
The best group of guys i have ever worked with. It was the only real job i ever had. I started at the bottom job and worked my way to the top. The hardest thing about this job is that we went through 7 general managers in a five year period.
Enjoyable work experience with Hiland Dairy,not enough opportunities for advancement particularly for older employees. Must be very dedicated to the job for it requires extremely early morning hours and considerably long days. Overall a very satisfying work place.
